    Me three.
  2. Political Discussion Thread (With Rules)

    What he said is exactly what he's legally obligated to do. The linked article doesn't share the exact questions he was being asked, but it seems to me he was dealing with a persistent and annoying line of questions from someone. Let's look at what he actually said: The headline doesn't tell the whole story, it's just click bait. The General is 100% in the right. He isn't acting rebelliously, he's telling someone how his job works, and what his legal obligations are.

    I mean quality story telling. I don't know what you think I think, but you are almost certainly wrong. If you're implying that the Snyderverse is dealing with "Grownup stuff," I'd have to say that the execution is so juvenile as to negate any grownup qualities.
  4. In other news...

    In this case, that can only be a good thing.

    I'd be happy if they started imitating the DCAU.
  6. New Series--The Orville

    Me three. She's by far the most likable character for me and the wife.
  7. Wonder Woman

    Yeah, he's not just some wallflower.
  8. Thor: Ragnarok spoiler thread

    I don't think they'll go there, but you never know.
  9. Thor: Ragnarok spoiler thread

    I'm thinking something along those lines may be an option, though one that might require too much screen time for them to attempt. I'm thinking we'll get a simpler version of "Asgard is the people," or not see it addressed directly. I strongly suspect that Hela is going to simply drift in space until some powerful malevolent being (Thanos) senses her and swings by to pick her up. ETA: Though they may not try to shoehorn her into Infinity War. But I don't think we've seen the last of her. Too much awesome to waste there.
  10. Animated superhero movies.

    I saw a trailer for an animated Gotham by Gaslight the other day. Looked promising. I think it's up for 2018.
  11. Thor: Ragnarok spoiler thread

    OK, I tried to get the ball rolling on a discussion of the biggest question I was left with from the film, but you all seem to be fixated on accusing me of genocidal thoughts, so I'm just going to skip to the part where I give my thoughts on the subject. Here's what we're given at the end of the movie: 1. Hela is too strong. 2. She draws her power from Asgard. 3. We must unleash Surtur to destroy Asgard and deprive Hela of her power source. That's the plan. It's pretty straightforward. BUT, earlier in the movie were are told: Thor also draws his power from Asgard. Logic tells us that if you destroy Asgard, this will also affect Thor. The movie does not give us information on Thor's status in this regard. After the destruction of Asgard, he isn't seen doing anything more strenuous than having a conversation and sitting in a chair. So, what possibilities are there? First Theory: Asgard is the people. In which case Thor is unaffected by the destruction of the physical location of Asgard and retains his previously shown power levels. Some considerations for this theory: 1. Hela would likewise be unaffected, since the place was destroyed and not the people. 2. This raises the question of how Hela draws power from the people of Asgard, vs. the place being imbued with power. a. She's a Death goddess, but she only shows control over the dead when using the Eternal Flame. So, drawing power from Asgard's dead probably isn't a viable explanation. b. She's not a very positive death goddess. She's not someone who ushers old dogs over the Rainbow Bridge. If anything, she's the scary side of Death, the grim reaper, etc. So, plausible that she draws power from Asgard through feeding on the fear of Asgardians. i. Odin seems to have raised Thor to be the counterbalance to Hela, so it would jibe that he draws power by inspiring hope and positive feelings in the Asgardian people. So, the "Asgard is the people" theory could work. It makes blowing up the place Asgard more of a delaying tactic, and raises the question of why Hela is so strong before even getting to Asgard. Second Theory: Odin didn't tell the whole story. Perhaps the floating land of Asgard is a repository for the Odinforce, and breaking it deprives Hela access, but Thor doesn't need the rock to access the Odinforce. Low probability of anything Odinforce involved in the MCU, IMO. They haven't mentioned it up until now and it doesn't seem like the sort of thing they want to get into. Third Theory: Thor did get depowered, and is now operating at the same level as any other elite Asgardian warrior -- which is still pretty impressive. Perhaps he goes into retirement from the superhero life to rule Asgard and later decides to make a new hammer and empower the next generation of Thor? Possible. I personally think they're going to go something to do with "Asgard is the people," mainly because that's the only thing they gave us in the movie. Second one is "Odin didn't tell Thor everything," because it's a recurring theme.

    Meanwhile, I'm going to blame your lack of attention.
  13. Thor: Ragnarok spoiler thread

    This is a joke, right?
  14. Thor: Ragnarok spoiler thread

    That's the way I took it. Which is why I discounted it as a possible explanation for leaving Thor at full strength. So, the big question is: Is Thor now just a Doug?

    You realize that was a rhetorical question, right? I'd never condone the genocide of so many fictional aliens.
